Nepal is the perfect destination for ‘Spiritual Discovery’.
Mornings in Nepal are filled with transcendent sounds of spiritual prayers and Hymns. One is transported to a divine place as the chanting of mantras, ringing of bells and the blowing of conch shells fill the air. Reverence and humility are awakened as prayers to the Spiritual Master are recited and as chanting of the ancient Vedic mantras are meditated upon.
Nepal breathes Spirituality since the country is a confluence of two major religions—Hinduism and Buddhism. The greatest Hindu shrine Pashupatinath (Lord Shiva’s temple) and Lumbini (birth place of Lord Buddha) make this Himalayan nation a prime site for ‘Spiritual Discovery’.
The country celebrates several cultures, traditions and beliefs and the core of all these celebrations ultimately leads to awareness and awakening of the spirit in celebration. Worshipping the supreme is at the centre of all rituals.
Pashupatinath temple, Budanilakantha (sleeping Bishnu), Krishna Temple of Patan, Janaki Mandir temple, Swoyambhunath Stupa, Bouddhanath Stupa, Lumbini, World Peace Pagoda, Malepatan Gumba and Tengboche Monastery are some of the many profound spiritual sites found here in Nepal.
The culture of Nepal, be it Hindu or Buddhist, is rooted in the ancient “shastras” or Vedic scriptures, which date back more than one hundred thousand years. The expression “Vedic” is derived from the Sanskrit word veda, which means knowledge or revelation.
Nepal is characterized by many ethical traditions; the young, in respect, bow their heads in front of elders, words of senior citizens are regarded with respect, truth is sought after and women are respected like a goddess. Much more interestingly, these respects are not just given for the physical body but for the inner being of every human consciousness. This is why the word ‘Namaste’ is very popular in this small Himalayan nation. The literal meaning for ‘Namaste’ is: I surrender my ego to your consciousness.
Namaste”, the art of surrender, is the starting point of your spiritual journey and this is the primary reason for building many temples and stupas in this majestic mountainous country. Every time you bow in front of a temple, consciously or unconsciously, you take a step closer to your inner being of supreme consciousness.
